Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin has been activated from the COVID list and practiced on Wednesday. That puts him on track to return for Saturday night's game against the Raiders. A healthy Gaskin has been Miami's lead back, averaging 17.5 carries and 4.3 targets over his last 6 games. We're expecting him to return to a similar role, despite RB Salvon Ahmed's solid Week 15 outing.

Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice. There was a report this past Sunday morning that Gesicki was on track to play vs. New England. He ended up inactive but must have been close to playing. We're tentatively expecting him to give it a go against the Raiders on Saturday night.

Dolphins WRs DeVante Parker (hamstring) and Jakeem Grant (hamstring) were limited in Wednesday's practice. Parker was seemingly close to playing vs. New England last week, so we're expecting him to suit up for Saturday night's game against the Raiders. Grant's status is less clear.

Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy (hip) and LB Jerome Baker (knee) are active for today's game against the Patriots. Each is in play for IDP use.

Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Patriots. He joins DeAndre Washington, Matt Breida and Patrick Laird in the backfield. Ahmed operated as Miami's lead back in Weeks 10 and 11 and might return to that role today. But it’s unclear exactly how touches will be distributed here.

Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Patriots. Adam Shaheen and Durham Smythe will share TEs duties. Neither is a bankable fantasy play, especially vs. the league’s 2nd-ranked TE defense.

Dolphins WRs DeVante Parker (hamstring) and Jakeem Grant (hamstring) are inactive for today’s game against the Patriots. That leaves Lynn Bowden, Mack Hollins, Antonio Callaway, Isaiah Ford and Malcolm Perry as Miami’s WRs. Bowden has some WR4 appeal after a strong showing last week.

Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki (shoulder) has a "real chance" to play vs. the Patriots today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Gesicki will workout before the game to determine whether he can give it a go. He'll obviously carry elevated risk in fantasy lineups if active. We'll get his game status around 11:30 am ET.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (hamstring) is "hopeful" to play against the Patriots today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It sounds like a decision on his status might not come until pregame warmups. If Parker does end up active, he'll be playing at less than 100%. That, plus a tough matchup, makes him a shaky fantasy option. WR Jakeem Grant (hamstring) is not expected to play, according to Rapoport.

Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Patriots. He got in 3 limited practices this week and seems on track to return. Ahmed operated as Miami's lead back in Weeks 10 and 11, totaling 33 carries and 7 targets. He might just be the best bet for touches in the backfield this weekend -- ahead of DeAndre Washington, Matt Breida and Patrick Laird -- but you're best off just avoiding this backfield in what figures to be a low-scoring affair vs. New England.

Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki (shoulder) got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Patriots. The Miami Herald reported earlier in the week that Gesicki was unlikely to play after dislocating his shoulder in last week's loss to the Chiefs, but it looks like he at least has a chance to play in this one. We'll get Miami's inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Dolphins WRs DeVante Parker and Jakeem Grant are listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots with their hamstring injuries. Both guys got in 3 limited practices this week and seem likely to play. Grant isn't a viable fantasy play at less than 100%. Parker is a risky WR3 between the injury and the matchup vs. CB Stephon Gilmore.

Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki (shoulder) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. It gives him a chance to play vs. New England this weekend. We'll see what Gesicki does tomorrow and how he's listed on Miami's final injury report.

Dolphins WRs DeVante Parker and Jakeem Grant were limited participants in Wednesday's practice with their hamstring injuries. That seems to give both guys a chance to play vs. New England this weekend. We'll get another update on their statuses tomorrow.

Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki is expected to miss at least 1 game after dislocating his shoulder in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, the Miami Herald reports. Gesicki's absence will leave Miami with TEs Adam Shaheen and Durham Smythe -- but neither is a bankable fantasy play.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker has a "slight" hamstring strain, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. It sounds like Parker avoided a serious injury, but his availability for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots is uncertain. Miami is likely to be without WR Jakeem Grant in that one, so the Fins could be down to WRs Lynn Bowden, Mack Hollins, Malcolm Perry and Antonio Callaway.

Dolphins WR Jakeem Grant is considered "week to week" with a hamstring injury suffered in the loss to the Chiefs, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. So don't expect Grant to play vs. the Patriots on Sunday. We're still waiting for an update on the injury that knocked WR DeVante Parker out of yesterday's game. Rookie WR Lynn Bowden took advantage of those injuries, hauling in 7 of 9 targets for 82 yards vs. Kansas City.

Dolphins TE Mike Gesicki hurt his right shoulder in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Chiefs and headed back to the locker room with trainers. We'll update his status when we know more.

Dolphins WRs DeVante Parker and Jakeem Grant suffered leg injuries in Sunday's game against the Chiefs and are questionable to return. Stay tuned for updates on both guys.

Dolphins LB Kyle Van Noy (hip) and LB Elandon Roberts (chest) are inactive for today's game against the Chiefs. That raises the IDP floor for LB Jerome Baker, who has seen inconsistent playing time throughout the season. The matchup keeps him from being a strong option, but Baker now sits inside the top 40 of our Week 14 LB rankings.
